What's an FTP Manager? How much helpful is it with regards to maintaining a site?
You can make use of separate FTP accounts to manage your content in case you have a number of sites in the same website hosting account. You can grant different people access only to specific directories, for example – web designers or IT professionals from the company, and rest assured that they won’t be able to connect to any other files or anything else in the hosting account, as the FTP accounts have limited access. Besides, you can set up and manage a number of different sites at once with a website building app such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver (since these applications make use of FTP to connect to the server) and publish the site files both when you create them and when you modify them. An essential part of accomplishing these things is the possibility to create and manage your FTP accounts quickly and easily.
